Abstract

Envelopes of strains had a multilayered Gram-negative appearance. Peptidoglycan contained significant amounts of glycine, and ornithine was the dibasic amino acid. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) did not contain heptose and 2-keto-3-deoxyoctonate was not positively identified. The polysaccharide from LPS contained glucose, glucosamine, galactose, galactosamine and, in two strains, mannose. The fatty acids identified in lipopolysaccharide were C, C and C, both saturated and unsaturated.
